One of the most popular and easiest masks is mask made from
honey and egg. These two ingredients make a moisturizing, nourishing and
tightening facial mask. And only with a few drops of essential oil, you’ve got
a real mask, just like the ones in spa stores. For oily skin, only use egg
whites and for dry skin, only use yolks. For normal skin, you can use the whole
egg to make a mask. This is an easy-to-make formula for a honey and egg facial
mask that helps shrink pores on the face and neck area, while also smoothing
and brightening your skin.

Things you will need
Apple cider vinegar
Lemon essential oil
Lavender or bergamot essential oil
Break and separate yolk or egg white into a small bowl. For the best
tightening and moisturizing effects, whip the whole egg until it is well
combined but not frothy. It’s better to do this by hand than using a wire whisk
or egg-beater. Add a teaspoon of honey and ¼ teaspoon of vinegar. Stir well
until all ingredients are combined.
Mix a teaspoon of
honey and ¼ teaspoon of vinegar into the egg
Add a drop of lavender essential oil into the mixture for dry skin and a
drop of bergamot essential oil for normal and oily skin. Mix the mixture well
and make sure that the oil is incorporated.
Apply the mixture onto your cleaned face and neck area. Allow the mask
to fry in 10-15 minutes before rinsing your face with warm water.
Tips and Warnings
For easy pouring the honey, hold the bottle in warm water in 2-5
minutes or let it stand in a pan of warm water.
Honey never goes bad. If it has become crystallized, just hold it
under hot water for a few minutes or leave it in a pan of hot water. Remember,
do not microwave honey. Being heated too fast or too hot can destroy some of
its natural enzyme actions.
For best results, use raw or unfiltered honey. Honey is
considered to be raw if it has not been processed. Most dark colored honey is
raw and unfiltered, which contains higher concentration of nutrients.

Throw away all unused portion of the facial mask. Don’t keep it
for the second use as it will goes bad quickly and lose its effectiveness.
